We should do higher.
It’s my hope that individuals of affect in South Africa stand up and communicate towards all that’s taking place.
Evil solely prevails when good males do nothing.
Could the souls of the departed, relaxation in peace and should the lord replenish all that has been misplaced.
We should…now greater than ever…lead with Love.
Ps. It’s the accountability of EVERY SINGLE AFRICAN to talk out about Xenophobia. Not only a choose few. There’s energy in numbers.
